Elm oysters and very low humidity.

How tolerant are H. ulmarius to extremely dry conditions, like say Arizona, indoors with no humidifier, and fanning a billion times a day is out of the question?

I think ifyou can keep the substrate wet enough you can get some nice results.

I used to grow them in Perth Western Australia which is another hot and dry place in the summer. All teh moisture come via the substrate.
I never had problems.
Alternatively if you look at the cluster im holding in the elm oyster thread - that came off shallow buried logs. The shrooms will fruit when it rains- id does rain there doesnt it? eventually?

If you did why not make a mini humidifier with a bin or tub with some perlite on the bottom and an open top
The evaporation might keep humidity over the ambient and yet because its open air exchange is good

im sure a variation on that idea would help you
